Former mayor Richard Riordan has suspended his effort to place a measure on the May ballot to roll back City Hall pensions.
“Richard Riordan's scheme to make trash truck drivers, street pavers and tree trimmers retire into poverty has failed because the citizens of Los Angeles value the men and women who serve their community,” said the union, in a statement attributed to sanitation worker Simboa Wright. “City residents weren't about to let a bunch of billionaires rewrite city policies. As city workers have been saying for a long time, Riordan's half-baked plan wasn't thought out. It died because it was bad for city workers and the city they serve.”
